Total waste of money! Please...
Liked: First, if you are allergic to cats, don't use this place. The owners allow their cats to roam the facility even after we said one of our friends were allergic. The fat cat was sitting on the furniture. Then we were told the continental breakfast wasn't offered until 8:30am. (People are usually up and going before this). We asked if he would serve earlier as we need to get going and his response was "I can't do it much earlier because I need my sleep". Thus, we had no breakfast that was included in our price. The rooms were extremely small. The shower was so small that my husband who is 6' couldn't fit in the shower. We were given "strick" rules that this is a B&B and things are done different than at a hotel. BEWARE! Total disappointment and waste of money.
Disliked: See above.

Excellent place to stay. Highly...
Liked: For a bed and bath we had a private bathroom, sink and TV. The bed was extra comfy. Continental Breakfast was provided with fresh coffee, juice and fresh muffins, choice of yogurt and more. Location is right next to Witch museum making it a perfect location to access all the sites in Salem.

Superior location and outstanding, informative...
Liked: Matt and Kelly are the biggest asset to this property; they are welcoming, informative and friendly. The location is outstanding. The living room (public) is comfortable. The rooms are very clean and the privacy is understood.
Salem is a quiet and accessible town; You don't really need a car to see most things. We found the Peabody Essex Museum to be outstanding; pay the extra and tour the house from China. The House of Seven Gables is another unique and outstanding tour; read the book before you go. We didn't do the 'witch' stuff, but there's plenty of opportunity to learn history and 'crafts' in Salem. The food choices are great. We recommend Red's Sandwich shop, Turner's Seafood and Ledger (which we felt had the best food and atmosphere.) Enjoy!! Take a side trip to Rockport or Boston. Lots to do and see or just hang around (no pun intended). Thanks, Matt and Kelly.
Disliked: I have difficulty walking; that said, Matt was kind enough to forewarn me. We went anyway. I personally had difficulty with the extremely tiny bathroom on uneven flooring. My side of the bed seemed uneven and I found it uncomfortable. The air conditioning was just not strong enough. I would have appreciated bottled waters in the rooms and plusher towels. There are no intruders during the stay which is great, but one has to re use towels, something I wouldn't mind if there was a place to hang dry the towels and if the towels were a bit more sizable. It would be wonderful to have some hooks on the bathroom door for clothes (inside the door). Breakfast is served at 8:30. Sure, things don't open up til ten in Salem but three rooms of people were waiting at 8:30 this morning and there's a single area to converge upon to get coffee and food. If you're in a hurry to get on the road or off to a side trip, this is not convenient. Additionally, for seven people this morning, there were four bagels, three muffins and some flat breads/English muffins. There was enough to have something, but if everyone had wanted a bagel, that would not have worked. There's something to be said for the 'appearance' of abundance even though it isn't necessary. Having enough of each choice for guests makes it less restrictive to choose an item. I would've preferred a bagel but there were none left. Matt and Kelly retire to their kitchen for long periods, so re stocking is possible, I suppose, but didn't seem a welcome request.

Liked: The weather had delayed our flight and we arrived later in the evening than anticipated but the owner accommodated us. He was very friendly and helpful and gave us some pointers as to the best places to go on our, unfortunately, rather brief visit.
The Inn is wonderful, full of character and interesting nick-nacks. Parking was easy and the Inn is in a very pleasant location in easy walking distance of most places we wanted to see.
